I came away today from your training course knowing more in two and a half hours than i have learned from attending seminars at trade shows and spending significant amounts of money on code courses.

I would happily recommend you to others and would not hesitate to use your services in the future."

I commissioned Nigel to design the first issue of FirstCar in 2004 and enjoyed many years working together on this and subsequent issues.

It is a testament to Nigel's skill, vision and enthusiasm that FirstCar now has an annual circulation of 1.8 million copies.

I couldn't praise Nigel enough, they built my jewellery website and designed all our stationery including logo design quickly and to budget. Nigel was very helpful and even gave advice which saved me money unlike some of the other companies I approached.

Media consultants, Kent

Every business buys media in some shape or form: print, website, workwear, signage are all part of what we call your corporate ID

But are they working efficiently?

Are you standing out from the competition?

Can you save money on printing?

Is your website top of google?

What's the best long term signage solution?

Do your employees look professional?


In so many cases the potential customer judges you on first appearance - you may not even get the call because they didn't like your business cards or website


Over the years I've seen many mistakes that have either cost the client work or wasted money buying in services.


I can save you money!

  Nigel Stevenson, media consultant in kent

Nigel Stevenson started life as a Technical Illustrator at Elliott Brothers based in Rochester, Kent, UK in 1975. This was a pen and drawing board era with large offices generating high quality line drawings for commercial and military technical manuals and parts catalogues.

Using those linear skills learnt on a drawing board has helped Nigel to create designs for all media as technology migrated into the digital age. Today the office has shrunk genie like into a small desktop box but the toolbox is still the same, just a little lighter!
